    Junk email filter (2003 SP2)

    In the blocked top-level domains list the junk email filter shows 'GB' as the top-level domain for the UK, but it omits the more common 'UK'. Does anyone know how to fix this, and has anyone spotted any other errors? The actual top-level domain list is at http://www.iana.org/cctld/cctld-whois.htm, but I have not checked it line by line with the list in Outlook.

    Do you want to block all .uk addresses? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    No, I don't. I'm just curious if there's a way to fix it.

    The point is that Microsoft has goofed again. I picked the UK top level domain as an example because everyone here would understand that. However, there are several others that are missing from Microsoft's list:

    ac Ascension Island
    ax Aland Islands
    eh Western Sahara
    eu European Union
    tp East Timor
    uk United Kingdom
    yu Yugoslavia

    If some spammers start spoofing the ax top level domain, I would like to be able to exclude it as I know for an absolute certainty that no legitimate emailer I know will be coming from there. And what's the point of Microsoft providing a top-level domain list if it's wrong?
